#PanamaPapers was so 2016. @ICIJ, @OCCRP, @SZ, and so many other partners have got a new leak for you. Here are the #ParadisePapers. /1
In the 21st century, money crosses borders more easily, and with less oversight, than people. Read these stories to learn how this works. /2
The leak consists of millions of documents from two offshore law firms. /3
They reveal a whole world of offshore scheming by some of the wealthiest people on Earth. Usually completely hidden from the public eye. /4
It takes months of work by many dozens of people to bring them to light. Please read these stories, and know that more are coming. /5
Want to know what an offshore services firm is, and how it works? Read this story. /6
And try this one. How a top Kazakh official used offshore schemes to build a multi-billion-dollar empire. /7 occrp.org/en/paradisepap…
Or how about this? Leaked documents show how Ukraine's President Poroshenko kept breaking his candy promises. /8 occrp.org/en/paradisepap…
And of course, don't forget about Trump's commerce secretary. /9 occrp.org/en/paradisepap…
Read the rest. And please remember: investigative journalism is hard, lengthy, expensive work. If you want transparency, support it. /10
Conveniently, you can do that here! occrp.org/en/donate /11
Finally: Couldn't be prouder of my foul-mouthed, cranky, brilliant colleagues. We've slaved away for months. More to come. I <3 you @OCCRP!

Here's @OCCRP's latest project -- the culmination of months of work by a huge, talented team. It's a cross-border investigation into how the world's wealthiest people can literally buy citizenships in other countries. /1 occrp.org/en/goldforvisa…
This is a very direct and tangible consequence of inequality. Some people drown in the Mediterranean trying to reach a new European home. Many get kicked out if they make it. Others can just pay money - sometimes a surprisingly small amount - and boom. Schengen visa. /2
Here's a video explaining the project. Read on for the country stories. /3
